A Message from Judge Steve H. John

Judge John has requested that all Horry County Bar Lawyers please review Rule 40 SCRP which will be adhered to during his term of Chief Administrative Judge for Common Pleas Court, starting January 1, 2012. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to let us know. Attorneys – Please take notice of the SC Supreme Court Administrative Order for Fast Track Jury Trials. The Court would hope that you would take advantage of that particular procedure. By order of the South Carolina Supreme Court, dated May 1, 2013, and effective on that date, two changes were made to the SC rules of civil procedure and one change was made to the SC rules of criminal procedure that will affect the circuit courts. Rule 4 (d)(9) was added to the SC rules of civil procedure, and it authorizes service of process to be made by a qualifying commercial delivery service and is similar to service by registered or certified mail. Rule 4(g), SCRCP, was amended to detail the proof required when a party serves process utilizing a commercial delivery service. Rule 35 was added to the South Carolina Rules of Criminal Procedure regarding computation of time. It is the same language as contained in Rule 6(a) of the South Carolina Rules of Civil Procedure, prior to the addition of this rule, the Rules of Criminal Procedure did not address the computation of time.
